Light colored golden. Smell pine, resin, lots of pine needles, a little citrus rind. Taste is rich in pine and grapefruit, not much malt apparency. Mouthdmfeel is light-medium. A good summer ipa, bbq, or pair with spicy foods.

Pours a beautiful straw color with a white head and active carb. Nose is a little muted but it's pretty straight forward citrus. Maybe mango and tropical fruit. The flavor is soft and delicate. Citrusy flavors dominate the palette with some light hints of pine showing through. It's very easy to drink and medium bodied. Carb keeps it light and refreshing.

A solid offering. Dangerous to drink as it goes down way too easy.

Cloudy golden and yellow with a thin, creamy white-head. Fairly sticky with nice retention. Pretty and appropriate.

Very expressive aroma; quite nice. Lots of citrus and mild pine combine nicely. Very aromatic, along with some mild malt sweetness and bread components as well.

Hugely bitter IPA, but it still remains drinkable. Some citrus and pine components mix with the bitterness, along with a little sweetness and bread, but the bitterness is this beer's main calling card. I don't mind the bitterness though, as the complementary flavors balance and linger nicely.

Medium bodied with moderate, creamy carbonation.

Great DIPA in a can. Would be happy to grab this if I was in a pinch and needed some canned hoppy goodness.

Big bright golden body pours into a nonic pint with no problems. Head is off white layered and luscious forms nicely above the glowing golden body. Aroma hops explode on the nares what a great smell, herbaceous herbal, citric hops, with big juicy ripened pineapple. Flavor full of juicy resinous hops, citrus peel, pineapple juice, even mango with tropical fruit. This is something else really drinkable with incredible hop notes, nothing like this exists on the east coast. Mouthfeel is oily and resinous bringing the dank hop oils with the tropical fruit to soften the blow of the hop bitterness, a bit of alcohol warmth but nothing that is too hot for the palate to enjoy this fine creation. Overall, I'm a huge fan of this beer since my first sip yesterday during a sampling session with wvsabbath to this full pint glass full of all the west coast hop glory.

Small to maybe medium sized slightly off white head settles to a quarter inch or less of froth covering a thick but not cloudy honey golden colored beer.

Light but very evident citrus style hops aroma.

Light citrus hops with maybe grapefruit coming through more so in the taste, also seems to be some light fresh grasses in the taste as well.

Dryish aftertaste with some of the citrusy lemon tastes hanging around with this lighter medium bodied IPA.

Decent tasting, nothing overwhelm but it has some definite west coast style hops tastes.
